Rapid Prototyping in Forensic Odontology
MetadataShow full item record
High-resolution CT scans of the head are routinely and pre-emptively undertaken at Queensland Health Forensic and Scientific Services where dental diagnosis or identification is likely to be an issue. Whole–body CT scans are also routinely undertaken where circumstances permit as part of the routine postmortem examination. Rapid prototyping of bony and dental remains has been undertaken using this CT data as a source for three dimensional printing of exhibits for analysis and possible court presentation, as well as for ongoing reference. This process is illustrated and the outcomes discussed.
